4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Santa Fe Irish Red Ale has a thick, somewhat soapy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear (with a slight haze), rust-red appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is not too strong, but one can detect sweet, bready, crusty malt, and a slight citrus note. Taste is of all of those elements, with a noticeable tannin quality. Bitterness is low. The mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit soft, and Santa Fe Irish Red Ale finishes refreshing, easy-going, and delicious. I recommend checking this one out! RJT

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a dark red color with small white head. The aroma was of subtleness and sweetness. The taste was of caramel malt balanced by some slight hoppy bitterness. It had a medium body with a sticky mouthfeel and a slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong malt aroma - some crystal and carared. Mouth feel is medium to full bodied but not heavy on the palate. Some crystal malt sweetness mixed with a hint of dark roasted coffee. Not a bad beer at all.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
tap Aroma is sweet, of cream, sugar, and malt. Flavor features malt, candy sugar, toffee, and a strange skunkiness. Not terrible, but definitely on par with my (low) expectation

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can that I got a case of for cheap. Dark red-brown color, good head. Smells super malty, not bad. Flavor is robust and malty, cereal, sort of surprising given the abv. Good session beer even though its a little darker in color. Santa Fe makes some pretty decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can pours a nice amber with copper edges and weak sort of light tan head. The mild aroma offers up earthy hops, spicy hops and a light amount of dark roasted malts. The taste begins moderately sweet with malts and a sweet nuttiness and then it moves toward a light amount of dark roasted malts as well as vague snippets of hop bitterness. This is hitting the spot right now. It is pretty full flavored for the style.
